As within, so without

While defending his empire from barbarian tribes, Marcus Aurelius wrote notes to himself about living in harmony.

It doesn’t help us to believe that hardships only bring suffering and ruin.

It’s fallacy to think ourselves powerless within our circumstance.

There is peace and acceptance and growth vibrating in the center of every storm of life .

The eye of the hurricane is always the most peaceful, while getting sucked into the swirling chaos will thrash and throw us astray.

Whatever is happening, is happening.

Whether I meet it kicking and screaming, or flowing back into the harmony of whatever is, will be my own reality to bear.
